Tracklisting

09 October 1987 (BFBS)

(JP: 'If you'll forgive me a kind of cosmic name-dropping, there was a time when I used to go drinking with Rod Stewart, amongst others, before he became enormously famous. He was a bloke who would never buy a drink, I mean, absolutely never. You could sit there all night looking at him accusingly, never buy a drink and every time you got up eventually out of despair and said, "Another drink, Rod?", he'd say, "Yes, please, and a Scotch egg", or something like that, "while you're at it." Amazing. That's perhaps why he's a multi-millionaire now. That and the records of course.')

16 October 1987 (BFBS)

(JP: 'In this week's programme, a tradition going back into the last century is broken, because in the past I've always had engineers to play the records. Well, you know how one does. You sit back and wave one's hand languidly and they start the records and you return to the bottle of wine. On this occasion I'm going to play the records myself, so it could be quite interesting.')
(JP: 'Why they chose to call an LP George Best I simply don't know. It grates every time I have to say it.')
